Scientific Computing, a part of the natural sciences, has experienced probably the most rapid growth of all sciences in the last decade. With the advent of computers, a new way of studying the properties of nature became available. One no longer has to make approximations in the analytical solutions of models to obtain closed forms and interesting but intractable terms no longer have to be omitted from models right from the beginning of the modeling phase. Now, by employing methods of scientific computing, complicated equations can be solved numerically, simulations allow the solution of hitherto intractable problems, and visualization techniques reveal the beauty of complex as well as simple models.
At the CSC, we offer training in scientific computing by research. Project opportunities exist for entry every academic year. Applications are welcomed for Research Council funded projects and from self-funding students.
You will work with an academic on a subject of current research associated with scientific computing.
